The V-Rooter is a double-ended, right-angled, v-shaped tool for rooting and rerooting soft doll heads.
It consists of two dowels, centered at ninety degrees to one another, inserted into
a wooden ball, with one needle on the end each dowel.
This improved design allows the user to put enough force on the sharp end of the tool to punch new holes (something standard strait rooting tools do not), and the pronged needle is thin enough to not cause scalp splits.
The fatter, sharp needle is for making new holes or widening old ones.
The thinner, pronged needle is mounted on a longer dowel than the sharp needle (allowing it to be used like a plane, straight tool) and has been cut off at an angle, creating a long tine and a short tine, this end of the V-Rooter is for stuffing hair into the doll head.
The flat side is for resting the V-Rooter on keeping the needles off your worktable and protects the fragile points from breaking and your worktable from nicks, scratches, and gouges.
To prolong the life of the needles, rest and store V-Rooter on its flat side.
